Ok, not my noob gains, just been riding regularly with my 9 y/o around our neighborhood. Even though he begged me to get him a road bike (he learned to ride in March), he doesn’t totally love bikes and it’s kind of a chore, so a lot of days he does it begrudgingly.
Otherwise, if he didn’t ride with me, he wouldn’t get any exercise (we have a lot of kids in the neighborhood, but evidently playing these days means standing around). Hopefully some day he’ll thank dad for taking an hour each day to ride around lol
The past 2 days have had 12mph averages for the hour, which is fun to see, fortunately I still have a ways to go before these rides start getting into Z2!
